Taught by my children (MFTWSC7)


Hey there! Here is my submission for this week's Wednesday Stamp Club over at My Favorite Things! I have to admit, I was a little stumped when I saw this sketch, because I wanted to use MFT stamps, but only have a few sets & I wasn't exactly sure of which one to use for this sketch, which clearly called for a sentiment stamp. Finally I decided on this one, figuring the kite accent would be a good fit for this stamp. MFT actually sells a kite shaped die, you can see it here. I don't have that die, though, so I cut the kite off of some patterned paper from a retired SU! hostess set, "Hand Drawn DSP/Bundle." I made the kite tail from some MORE of that baker's twine from Crate and Barrel (don't worry, I'll let ya know if I ever use up all 2300 feet! lol;)  I used a combination of patterned papers from that pack and "Greenhouse Gala DSP." I WAS able to use my MFT cloud die on this though. I LOVE this sentiment. My kids have kept me smiling through much stress lately, and remind me that life is short & life is for living. Don't kids have a marvelous ability to help you keep perspective? I think they do! :) I hope you like my card, I would love to increase my followers to 60 by my blog anniversary in May, so follow if you can! 

I hope you all have a stellar day! Take it easy and take a minute to feel the sunshine on your face:)

xoxox, Noelle
